Answer:

The centripetal force is #=552.7N#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is

#F=mv^2/r=mromega^2#

The mass is #=2kg#

The radius is #r=7m#

The angular velocity is #omega=2pif=2pi*1=2pirads^-1#

The centripetal force is

#=2*7*(2pi)^2=552.7N#

Answer:

#F_c=56pi^2N#

Explanation:

We will first find the angular velocity :

#ω=2pif=2pi*1=2pi(rads)/s#

The centripetal force is :

#F_c=mω^2r=2*4pi^2*7=56pi^2N#
